How To Be An Effective Messenger Of God

Do We Still Have Prophets? Yes, We Do!

There are prophets of Baal, and there are prophets of God both are still inexistent.

Misconception in Luke 16:16 that there are no more prophet

“The Law and the Prophets were proclaimed until John… In other words, many interpretations agreed that there is no more prophet. Reread your bible and ask the Holy Spirit for better understanding.

The scripture says, Until John the Baptist, the law of Moses and the messages of the prophets were your guides, so Jesus was telling them that He is here now, and when He left the Holy Spirits take charge.

Here are some questions to challenge our reasoning:

1. What is the right news that Jesus sent believers to preach to the world?

2. Is it everyone that is teaching that good news as was sent?

3. Who are the people preaching the good news, and what are they called?

Your answer to this questions may broaden your knowledge and give you more understanding of what prophet means. “I am sending them into the world” Are we genuinely preaching what He sent us?

Who is a Prophet of God? The one sent by God.

A prophet of God means the one God has chosen, a “licensed” messenger. 

A Prophet of God is someone that God has approved, and He’s sending him on an urgent errand to continue the delivering of a specific message to His people and the whole world as He pleases. 

Example, “Jesus said to them, “Don’t be afraid! Go tell my brothers to leave for Galilee, and they will see me there.” Matthew 28:10.

“Does it mean that Jesus forgot to inform his brothers earlier of where to meet him? Absolutely No! He didn’t. He had told them even before they arrested Him, but for a reason best known to the disciples, they didn’t believe Him, or maybe they forget. Therefore they refused to oblige.

Either in old testaments or new testaments, old days or this current dispensation as a messenger of God (Prophet) remains a messenger; only the mode of their operation may be different. 1 Samuel Chapter 16

“The Lord said to Samuel, “How long will you mourn for Saul since I have rejected him as king over Israel? Fill your horn with oil and be on your way; I am sending you to Jesse of Bethlehem. I have chosen one of his sons to be king.” But Samuel said, “How can I go? If Saul hears about it, he will kill me…”

In John 17:18-20 Jesus says, “Just as you sent me into the world, I am sending them into the world. And I give myself as a holy sacrifice for them so they can be made holy by your truth.

“I am praying not only for these disciples but also for all who will ever believe in me through their message.

The book of Acts Apostle chapter 22:21 mentioned “Then the Lord said to me, ‘Go; I will send you far away to the Gentiles.’

In this article, I will share only three things with you if God has chosen you to be His mouthpiece.

  1. The first thing I will share with you is, Prepare your will as in the legal distribution of your properties that is if you have some; and handover your family back to God. “What if I have concluded to sell all my properties and give the money to the poor? There is nothing wrong about this idea, but the other side of what you decide is that you too will become poor and this new status will give you the privilege to know what other poor people are enduring. You will also have firsthand experience in understanding the difference between Faith in God and Faith in the Tithes and Offerings that comes in every Sundays or whenever you have services. This courageous act may also give you an opportunity to have a sober mind that there is no sense in establishing a private mission school for the sake of the poor people and the same poor people will not be able to afford the school due to the very high cost of school fees. However, what you feel or decide to do is irrelevant the God that sent hold the keys to your instruction. But if selling your property was part of the direction you received from God when He called you, then it will surely work correctly. Caveat! Make sure you heard from GOD clearly before you allow your money or properties to ends up in the hands of a religious fraudster. Also be very sure that you don’t sell your properties or give them to any Pastors, Prophets, Overseers or Bishops to buy a private jet because of your ambition to become a Deacon or Pastor later for the benefits of tithes and offerings or to belong to their caucus. Your gesture maybe synonymous with stupidity and might subject you to lifetime religious slavery. BEWARE! How? Because the bible says “For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his soul? Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?

2. The second thing I will share with you if you desire to be an effective messenger of God is to be ready to eat from the “Ravens” and drink from the “brooks.” In other words, be ready for persecution and rejection. Why did you say that? I said that because I know for sure, and moreover, the work of a prophet is not the type of assignment that everyone will applaud you, or want to give you a gift. That means if God does not send you-you may die of hunger and depression.

3. The third thing and the last that I will share with you, for now, is that you cannot remain with the familiar (family) if God is sending you on an errand. In other words, you must disengage yourself from all lies, deceptions, and sentiments. Before I received my calling, I was under a few diplomatic religious gurus’ that are major in tutoring their disciples on how to be subtle in deception and sow seeds to receive anyhow blessings. However, for my assignment of (prophetic ministry) to be competent and in compliance with my Commandant instructions I must drop all known diplomatic and deceptive strategies lifestyle.

The power of the Holy Spirit is what propels a true prophet of God.

Acts Chapter 2

“And it shall be in the last days,’ says God, ‘That I will pour out My Spirit upon all mankind; And your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, And your young men shall see  visions, And your old men shall dream  dreams; 

18 Even on My bond-servants, both men and women, I will in those days pour out My Spirit, And they shall prophesy. 

In conclusion, It is better not to be born again than for you to say you’re and not carrying out your assignment because of fear or sentiments. Check out your ways and dare to take a stand.

 For the anxious longing of the creation waits eagerly for the revealing of the sons of God. ” Romans 8:19.

I pray that God will give as many people that want to stand for him the power to be able to carry on their assignment in Jesus name.

I AM WITH YOU

“I AM WITH YOU”

Since I answered God’s call to serve him, there has been persecution all around me including from my own house.

That of my own house, I really understand that it’s the tactic of the enemy so that I will not focus on my assignment, but that doesn’t bother me a bit because Jesus says in the book of John chapter 15 verse 20

“Remember the word that I said to you: ‘A servant is not greater than his master.’ If they persecuted me, they will also persecute you. If they kept my word, they will also keep yours.

Based on this truth I have concluded that absolutely nothing can stop me.

 When his family heard about this, they went to take charge of him, for they said, “He is out of his mind.” And the teachers of the law who came down from Jerusalem said, “He is possessed by Beelzebub! Mark 3:21-22.

Whatever anyone says concerning you is none of your business; your business should be completing your assignment and still keep the Faith.

What is your choice?

Returning back to your old way would be a bad choice for me. Why? “Jesus replied, “No one who puts a hand to the plow and looks back is fit for service in the kingdom of God.” Luke 9:62

Therefore going with enthusiasm in the way of Christ, and continuing wreaking havoc to the kingdom of the devil will be my best choice.

The day enemy lost control over me was the day Christ took over my life.

How do you perceive yourself?
He that is with you is greater than he that is in the world.
One day I was praying, and the Lord said to me “though you may think that everything is going contrary to what I have told you or against you, however do not be confuse stay with your conviction in me”

 1 John 4:4 Says, “You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.

You need God assurance and His grace in every of your steps

Sometime ago the Lord said to me, “my son I want you to be still, pay more attention to me this morning than ever before. I want to show you something that will embolden you more in your assignment”.
Without delay I left everything I was doing upstairs, came down stairs and sat in our living room.

*First thing I recorded that morning was my wife came down stairs about to leave for her business. She asked me a question, ‘’why can’t you turn on the lights instead of sitting in the dark’’? Honestly I do not see myself sitting in the dark; the way she perceived my situation while I sat in the living room doesn’t represent my situation in any way. Where I was seated, I could write a message clearly without omission of any word, that is how lighted the place was to me.

How do you perceive yourself? Do you see yourself with men’s mirror or God’s mirror?

*The second thing that I recorded that morning was my wife came back inside to notify me of an informed “problem” on her vehicle, which was not a problem at all, because the vehicle has an on board alert system for such problem.

I asked her, is there any alert shown on the dashboard panel? She said no!

Also we carried out a necessary checkup physically which also proved that the problem was invalid. But for one reason or the other her mind couldn’t just reset.

Learn how to reset your mind sensitivity alert

Thinking about senses, our senses are there mainly for the purpose of alerting us of especially imminent danger; however we need to learn also how to reset it back to its original state once the danger is averted.

Someone has earlier set my wife’s’ mind sensitivity alert to a “problem” and she doesn’t know how to reset her mind back to normal once she found out that the problem was invalid.

Example: Jesus disciples were stocked on previous information in John 11

and then he said to his disciples, “Let us go back to Judea.”

“But Rabbi,” they said, “a short while ago the Jews there tried to stone you, and yet you are going back?”

Jesus answered, “Are there not twelve hours of daylight? Anyone who Walks in the daytime will not stumble, for they see by this world’s light. 

10 It is when a person walks at night that they stumble, for they have no light.”

In other word stop seeing the situation as if it will remain forever, all problems has expiration date. This simple mistake will always cause fear in our lives, except we have the leading of the HOLY SPIRIT.

Didn’t we have right to be afraid when the situation look scary and genuine?

Of course yes it’s in human nature to be afraid, but as a child of God we should not!

Why? The word of God tells us that “For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind. 2 Timothy 1:7

Information, Revelation, or Advice is to bring our attention to something, especially if things are not going right and there is possibility of a danger, however, as a believer we have what it takes to take action and destroy every fiery darts.

The right thing for any man or woman of wisdom or a child of God is to first of all pray; then carry out checkup based on the information we received and make necessary corrections if necessary. The word of God says “Anyone who walks in the daytime will not stumble, for they see by this world’s light”.

You may noticed that I said if necessary, the reason was because at times it might be that what they perceived, you have authentic information concerning the issue, then there is no cause for you to be alarmed.

Every child of God also has an alert system call the Holy Spirit!

Every time we’re afraid, it’s a signal that something is not right and it could be something we have prior knowledge of but we ignore the warning, or maybe we just gave a “window dressing” solution.

If you’re the type that has knowledge about scriptures, you might have read similar things that happened in the life of King Saul.

In the book of 1 Samuel chapter 15, everybody was giving Saul praises, except God Almighty. Why? He refused to obey the word of God in details. Samuel brought it to his attention, but Saul shifted Samuel focus to worship.

“Saul replied, “I have sinned. But please honor me before the elders of my people and before Israel; come back with me, so that I may worship the Lord your God.”  So Samuel went back with Saul, and Saul worshiped the Lord. 1 Samuel 15:30-31. 

Warning came to Saul, but Saul “window dressed” the warning for “worship”. Really! How could Saul act so foolishly? Well the reason was best known to him. But what I know is that from that moment peace eludes Saul, and he ended up lost unmerited kingdom that supposed to last for him and destroyed his next generation.

When the Almighty God becomes Samuel’s God to Saul that is a great signal…

Saul attention was on self, praises and accolades he was receiving from his people, but he completely relegated God to his “house maid”

I pray that we all will not be like that of Saul in the name of Jesus.

Lesson: The Lord said to me, Son no matter the oppositions, do not be distracted focus on your assignment, even if it’s come to death, you must boldly and prayerfully stand on your conviction.

“I AM WITH YOU”.

What is God telling you? Stick with it, knowing well that God is with you.

Can I lose my salvation?

Can I lose my salvation? 

Let’s let the Bible answer this question. First, it’s important to remember that salvation is by God’s grace, not our works.

Ephesians 2:8-9: “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.”

We don’t earn salvation by our obedience; you can’t earn what you don’t deserve. But by His Grace through faith when we accept HIM, Jesus gives us His righteousness Romans 3:22–25: “This righteousness from God comes through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe.” (KJV)

Several Bible text tells us that: “For if after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, they are again entangled therein, and overcome, the latter end is worse with them than the beginning.

21 For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them.

22 But it is happened unto them according to the true proverb, the dog is turned to his own vomit again; and the sow that was washed to her wallowing in the mire.”- 2 Peter 2: 20-22 (KJV)

This clearly shows that it is possible for people that are saved to lose their salvation because they turned away from that which they had come to know.

The bible tells us about how such people eventually become entangled in the world’s corruption and be worse off than they were when they knew him.

And Revelation 3:5 “He that overcomes, the same shall be clothed in white raiment; and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life, but I will confess his name before my Father, and before his angels.” (KJV)

In other words, they that endure till the end shall be saved. This is the categories of people Jesus Christ is referring to.

Finally, Paul said; he takes care so that he doesn’t become disqualified for eternal life

1 Corinthians 9:27 But I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway.” (KJV)

This is the view a child of the Most High God should uphold.

The Altar Call

If you are not yet saved or born again but you desire to be, please say this short prayer:

Heavenly Father, I come to you in the name of Jesus Christ. I acknowledge to You that I am a sinner, I repent of ALL my sins and the life that I have lived; I need your forgiveness.

I believe that your only begotten Son Jesus Christ shed His precious blood on the cross at Calvary and died for my sins, and I am now willing to turn from my sin.

You said in Your Holy Word, Romans 10:9 that if we confess the Lord our God and believe in our hearts that God raised Jesus from the dead, we shall be saved.

Right now I confess Jesus as the Lord and the Saviour of my soul. With my heart, I believe that God raised Jesus from the dead. This very moment I accept Jesus Christ as my own personal Saviour and according to His Word, right now I am saved.

Thank you Jesus for your unlimited grace and faith in You which has saved me from my sins. I thank you Jesus that your grace never leads to license, but rather it always leads to repentance. Therefore, Lord Jesus transform my life so that I may bring glory and honour to you alone and not to myself.

Thank you Jesus for dying for me and giving me eternal life. Amen

  • Find a BIBLE TEACHING church where you can worship God.

Be Informed!

It is important to ensure that once you have received the knowledge of the truth, you have come to know Him, do not turn back again to the weak and worthless elementary principles of the world.

I pray that these scriptures ministers to you in Jesus Name:

Romans 6:1-2 (KJV)”What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound? 2God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein?”

2 Peter 2:20-21 (KJV)”For if after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, they are again entangled therein, and overcome, the latter end is worse with them than the beginning. 21For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them.”

Speaking the truth is impossible if you don’t want to lose anything

Christian be ready for persecution tightens  up

Satan is seeking more converts for hell.

Any country or individual that is ready to resist Satan deception must be ready to remain in the steadfast love of God that never cease. And Satan will surely flee from you in the name of Jesus.

But, not without consequences; are you ready to face them?

Some years ago Pastor John Hagee went to a country to preach the good news to be precise Canada, he actually has an office there.  He stepped on toes and they shut down his office… few weeks later his office was re-opened on agreement.

You can’t preach the truth; without stepping on toes.

When you eventually does, you may lose your citizenship or parishes.

Remember this, not all good news is the truth.

For example: “Your loan has been approved!” That is good news. However the truth is; most especially for a “tither” you are a lender not a borrower.

Another example: “The doctor says your cancer can be managed” but the truth is that the promise says you are totally healed.

This is one of the reasons why the unbelievers want to stay out of “born again Christians”.

“And it shall come to pass, if thou shalt hearken diligently unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to Observe and to do all his commandments which I command thee this day, that the LORD thy God will set thee on high above all nations of the earth: (Deuteronomy 28:1)

Those are Israelite. Then why is it suddenly you are no more an Israelite when it comes to the truth?

Look beyond material things, prosperity is not how much money you can hoard.

 And behold, there came a man up to Him, saying, Teacher, what excellent and perfectly and essentially good deed must I do to possess eternal life? And He said to him, why do you ask me about the perfectly and essentially good? There is only One who is good —God. If you would enter into the Life, you must continually keep the commandments. He said to Him, What sort of commandments; or; which ones? And Jesus answered, you shall not kill, you shall not commit adultery, you shall not steal, you shall not bear false witness,Honor your father and your mother, and, you shall love your neighbor as yourself.The young man said, I have observed all these from my youth; what still do I lack? Jesus answered him, If you would be perfect , go and sell what you have and give to the poor, and you will have riches in heaven; and come, be my disciple . But when the young man heard this, he went away sad (grieved and in much distress), for he had great possessions. And Jesus said to His disciples, truly I say to you, it will be difficult for a rich man to get into the kingdom of heaven.” Matthew 19:16-23.

Do Not Judge

Do Not Judge, Is An Enemy Tactic Of Wrecking Havoc.

Matthew 7:1-2 says, “Judge not, that you be not judged. For with the judgment you pronounce you will be judged, and with the measure, you use it will be measured to you.

The scriptural passage quoted above is the most misused text, especially in the Christian fold.
Why? Because many Christians and their leaders have too much skeleton in their closets.
It’s doubtful that someone will see a pilot that is on duty already drunk yet with another bottle of alcohol without questioning him or report such to the authority. Why? So he will not wreck any havoc in many people’s lives. That’s a good and sound judgment.

This scripture of “judge not” is often misinterpreted by unbelievers and professing Christians alike.
Often you will hear people saying “judge not,” as if Jesus’s followers are dumb or JESUS tells His people not to make any judgments whatsoever. Christ is not saying here that we are not supposed to judge but that we should judge carefully and honestly.
In our judging, we should not fail to be mindful of our own character because we are manifesting and reflecting the very character of God. In fact, Jesus calls us to use caution and discernment in making judgments, and making sound judgments is part of Christian discipleship.

Let’s look at the book of Matthew 18:15-20

15. “If your brother wrongs you, go and show him his fault, between you and him privately. If he listens to you, you have won back your brother.
16. But if he does not listen, take along with you one or two others, so that every word may be confirmed and upheld by the testimony of two or three witnesses.
17. If he pays no attention to them , tell it to the church; and if he refuses to listen even to the church, let him be to you as a pagan and a tax collector.
18. Truly I tell you, whatever you forbid and declare to be improper and unlawful on earth must be what is already forbidden in heaven, and whatever you permit and declare proper and lawful on earth must be what is already permitted in heaven.

Please reread verse 17. If as a believer, we’re allowed to call the attention of another believer to his or her wrongdoing, then what makes us think that we’re not entitled to draw attention, or rebuke someone that is demonstrating craziness?

Did Christian get it wrong? Yes! Where? Jesus says, “And if he refuses to listen even to the church, let him be to you as a pagan and a tax collector. 

The Body of Christ is missing it here, Jesus was not talking of excommunication. Matthew 9:9-13 “As Jesus passed on from there, He saw a man named Matthew sitting at the tax collector’s office; and He said to him, Be My disciple . And he rose and followed Him.
And as Jesus reclined at table in the house, behold many tax collectors and sinners came and sat (reclined) with Him and His disciples.
And when the Pharisees saw this, they said to His disciples, why does your Master eat with tax collectors and those sinful?
But when Jesus heard it, He replied, those who are strong and well (healthy) have no need of a physician, but those who are weak and sick.
Go and learn what this means: I desire mercy and not sacrifice and sacrificial victims.
For I came not to call, and invite to repentance the righteous, (those who are upright and in right standing with God), but sinners, (the erring ones and all those not free from sin).

In this short passage, we can see that Jesus accepts and fellowships with sinners (even tax collectors) without lowering His standard.

What is paganism or pagan? 

Paganism means an umbrella term covering a much different traditional religion and belief system. While Paganism may term as a spiritual way of life, its origin is rooted in ancient nature religions. Example of pagans are gentiles! That is you and me or what we represent before we are born again.

What is a tax collector?

A tax collector is a person who collects unpaid taxes from other people or corporations.
To know more about tax collectors, look at the ones in charge of collecting taxes in your countries. Another example of a tax collector: The author of the book of Matthew; which you and I are reading. So where did the Christ followers got the idea of treating pagan and tax collectors as trash?

The one that called us had already given us the template of how to run his ministry. Why do we bother about the many fallacies from the minister’s conferences and seminar note?

In conclusion, “Do not judge according to appearance, but judge with righteous judgment.” ‭John ‭7:24 ‬‬
